Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

End intellectual property
Nov. 12, 2018

a good discussion of US IP law (the 4 categories) + the history of it, along with arguments for why it needs reform (quite radical tho still incremental in scope). mentions RMS too.

seems to agree with the point in my Logic piece that open source suggests the superfluity/fetters of IP law:

Indeed, the presence of alternative economic models such as those of the free and open-source software movement suggest that, in the new digital economy, property rights based on tangible goods are likely to have only limited success, and indeed might inhibit innovation and production.
